Saw the chest cam was wondering how long it'd take for the 2011 to be up :D

The track looks fast, apart from the pedaly section it should be sweet!

Race will be won or lost there I'd say. It's so long riders like Minaar and Leov will have an advantage.

The top part looked well rad.
Huge jumps and hucks.

The bottom looked utter rubbish.



The old Dirt Fantasy League has a couple new features.
You may now change one of your riders per round in case someone gets injured.

Thanks for the thread :)
Looking forward to the new season and wondering how the new-look Giant team will fare?

Some decent gaps on the track and I'm loving the rent-a-doubles, pity about the flat section

When they said a 40 second flat section, I thought they were massively exaggurating.

They weren't.

That shits WHACK.
